I (quite strongly) dislike astrology, but I just found out mercury’s been in retrograde since thursday and it kinda explains why nothing in my life and mind makes sense atm
I became a total astrology ho this past year. Some of it might be fake or pulled out of people's asses, but it's a fun hobby and a fun way to pass the time tbh.
My beef starts when people take things too far and actually are judgemental of people with certain signs, and justify (or condemn) personalities or behaviors because “that’s what x sign would do”. That kinda thing really grates on my nerves, but I guess that’s what a Capricorn would say lol. I also think compability is shite or coincidence.
Makeup brands keep releasing Zodiac themed stuff this season, so I found myself googling my natal charts (i’m ascending cancer and moon pisces btw go figure that combo out lmao) for shits and giggles a few weeks ago. Some stuff is spot on, but I feel like the descriptions are either too vague or too elaborate and at some point we’ll find stuff to relate to. We also tend to look for validations of our aspirations and what not (i.e. a shy person feels cool to read that they have strength and confidence within themselves), and we find that in astrology. Some of that is just clever psychology. The rest is ugh... dunno, bullshit?
